and activities of international law and the domestic laws of many other countries. for north korea, these criminal activities are viewed as necessary to maintain the power of the regime without regard for the fact they are corrosive to international law and order. the question is what steps can we take to combat north korea's illicit dvds encounter after its be used to pressure north korea to abandon nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. i heard on the news this morning the agreement has been made extensively with china to punish north korea for its missile launching nuclear tests. i hope china will not do what it's done in the past and agree to sanctions and then just erode the sanctions so the sanctions never took hold. i hope china will finally understand the north korean regime is a threat to stability in that region of the world and because as chairman pointed out, north korea is a rogue state, helping countries like syria try to obtain nuclear weapons to collaborate with iran. i want this committee to know that on this issue, there is not a millimeters worth of diff
